LaBoyteaux 2020–Willful Negligence

Over 80,000 new Coronavirus cases yesterday, the highest daily total ever ….. and now over 220,000 deaths.  Exposure and transmission increases as people spend more time indoors with Fall and Winter weather.  Trump knew how serious this could be back in February. He had all the scientific information from the best medical experts.  It cannot be ignorance, slow brain or anything but willful negligence.  He continues to promote a false normality and encourage behavior which will spread this disease.  Now he tries to distract us by once again changing the subject, to Joe Biden’s position on oil and climate change.

My position on energy is as follows.  We need to produce somewhat more oil, gas and coal than the country consumes in order to maintain energy independence and keep fuel prices reasonable for average consumers.   Simultaneously we need to move as quickly as possible to non-polluting renewable energy.  Renewable energy is already an industry.  We need to build it into a much larger industry and lead the whole world in this direction.  Climate change is a world wide problem which can only be solved through international cooperatiion.  The Paris Climate Agreement is/was symbolic ….. it is what we actually do which is important.  This is very close to Biden’s position, only stated in different words.

Smoke on the Water

So many people all across this country doing their best to limit the spread of Covid-19, waitresses wearing masks and gloves, sanitizing tables, cooks and kitchen workers being tested almost daily, plexiglass shields at sales counters, but in most states the numbers are ticking up as Fall comes on.  Meanwhile our President refuses to wear a mask, ridicules Joe Biden for wearing one, holds indoor rallies, disregards the advice of Dr. Fauci, Dr. Birx and Dr. Redmond, dinks around the the CDC guidelines, and recruits a quack Dr. Atlas to the virus task force.  Over 200,000 people have died and continue to die. President Trump cares only about himself and his political future.  So unnecessary, so disgusting, a complete lack of moral leadership.

Meanwhile, Bob Woodward says the election and our democracy are teetering as President Trump, trailing in the polls, attacks the election process itself.  The Congress could speak out here, affirming mail in voting, protecting the polling places from intimidation, fixing the postal system, and validating the founding principles of this country that all men are created equal, all have a right to vote, government by the people.

Please see my 8/16/2020 post about Mail in Voting.  Smoke on the water here this morning.  Pray for our country.  VOTE!!!
